Du’a for boarding any means of transport
Travelling from place to place is a part of everyone’s day to day routine.
Some travel by walking, while others on bikes, scooters, motorbikes, cars, vans, trucks, busses, coaches, trains, ships, planes and some places animals too. These are all forms of transport to take us from one place to another.
All of these forms of transportation are a great blessing from Allah Ta’ala which make life so much more easier for us. For this reason, our amazing Nabi ﷺ taught us the following dua, which we should all memorise and read every time we board a vehicle or any form of transport.
